In this game the Falcons will seek a comeback after a difficult lost to the Buccaneers of Tampa Bay and the 49’ers also struggling with a loss to the Rams and fans are asking which team will move back into the win column after this Week 9 game.
The fans of the 6-2 Falcons know their team got off the win column this past Sunday, even as the Bucs tried on several occasions to lose the game as the Falcons came back after trailing by 17 points, but in the end came up short and lost the game in OT 23-20 which to date that loss was the 1st home loss this season and the 2nd to date.
The efforts of Falcons QB M. Ryan nearly gave them a win as he completed 37 of his 45 passing attempts for a total of 398 yards and 2 TD’s, the last being a 8 yard TD to receiver J. Jones that took the game to OT. In that game Jones had 12 receptions for some 164 yards. The loss was a tough to accept but as they say the life for the Falcons continue as they seek a comeback win at the 49’ers as the San Francisco has lost the last 6 of their latest 7 games coming into Week 9.
If the Falcons are to make a comeback win in this game they will need to take advantage of their overall offensive game which to date has averaged some 415 yards each game which ranks 4th in the NFL this season. Plus, using their accurate passing game which is averaging some 9.2 yards on each reception and that’s because of WR J. Jones.
In this game WR Jones will attempt to take apart the 49’ers struggling secondary that has allowed the opponents receptions to go on average for 8.5 yards. WR Jones in his 4 of his 8 games has made the 100 yard mark to date and he has accumulated this season 732 yards on receptions.
The Falcons RB D. Freeman has been playing well this season as he has on each carry averaged 4.4 yards and to date has accumulated some 622 yards rushing while scoring 6 TD’s this season. The Falcons in their ultimate 10 games on the road are with 6 wins and 4 losses straight up.
Then for fans of the struggling 2-6 49’ers of San Francisco your team has been categorized as terrible this season to date, and in their last game in Week 8 they lost the total yardage challenge as the Rams had 389 yards while the 49’ers had a mere 189 yards. They were overtaken by the duo of F> Gurley and T. Austin.
The fans have to take into account that the Falcons were short 2 key players to injuries in RB’s C. Hyde and R. Bush and with that duo absent the 49’ers could not get their running game going.
To top that the 49’ers QB C. Kaepernick had another bad game as he only completed 48.6 % of his passes for a mere 160 yards with no TD’s scored and was intercepted on 3 occasions. With that loss the 49’ers have not scored in their ultimate 2 games and have lost 6 of their ultimate 7 games to date.
With the poor performance of QB Kaepernick the 49’ers have turned to back-up QB B. Gabbert to start this game is making his 1st ever start for the 49’ers after playing 3 years with the Jaguars of Jacksonville.
Defensively the team will look to N. Bowman to interrupt the great offense of the Falcons as Bowman leads the team win 53 individual tackles and some 16 assists, while in his last 5 games he has had 1 sack in each of those games. The 49’ers in their ultimate 10 games at home are with 5 wins and 5 losses straight up.
The prediction for this game is that the Falcons of Atlanta return to their winning form a beat the 49’ers 39-10!
